Juergen Klinsmann says he expects the USA national team to keep producing positive results even though they have already qualified for the 2014 World Cup.
The US have two CONCACAF qualifiers remaining with fixtures against Jamaica and Panama to be played on Friday and Tuesday in Kansas City and Panama City respectively and Klinsmann is imploring quality performances in order to set the tone for Brazil next summer.
“For the rosters against Jamaica and Panama, the thought process was the same as all the previous qualifiers,” he told USsoccer.com.
“We want to win these games. We want to finish off the year on a high note, but we also want to make the game against Jamaica a special one.
“It’s our last home game of 2013, and we have had tremendous support from all the fans throughout the country wherever we have played. We want to recognize that and give the fans a real good game and three points.
“These games already count toward the World Cup in 2014 in terms of the internal competition and the mentality we are trying to build.”
The US have had a very successful 2013 with a win-draw-loss record of 14-2-3 which included six victories to clinch the CONCACCAF Gold Cup.
